Berry Morning Breakfast Crisp Recipe! #YayOats

Since I was a little kid, oatmeal has been a common breakfast dish. I have always loved eating oatmeal in the countless ways it can be prepared. From my memory of Dad’s stove-top cooked hot Quaker® oatmeal with cranberries to my favorite oatmeal raisin cookies, oatmeal has always been there to fuel and fill me up. 

Sharing my love of oatmeal with my family through the years has tested my inventiveness at times. They are such picky eaters! Today, in celebration of National Oatmeal Day, I’m using the best oatmeal — Quaker® Oats, to whip up a cheerful breakfast treat that makes them shout YAY OATS!

Berry Morning Breakfast Crisp Recipe

This Berry Crisp can be enjoyed in the morning for breakfast or as a dessert in the evening. Eat it plain, top it with a scoop of frozen yogurt or even a few tablespoons of tangy Greek yogurt. Any way you scoop it, it’s a delicious way to start your day.
